Finnish viking metallers Turisas announced that they will embark on a headlining tour in the UK starting October 27th, in support of their latest album “Stand Up And Fight” released in March, via Century Media Records.

They will also visit Dublin and Belfast co-headlining with Devin Townsend.

Violinist Olli Vänskä commented on the news:

“We did a similar run back in 2008 and it was a massive success. So many international bands only do a 3 – 4 date tours in the UK, only covering a couple of the major cities: we wanted to dig deeper and played a lot of shows also in smaller towns and cities. The audience seemed really appreciative and we had some super intense shows back then, and I’ve no doubt that this tour is going to be an exploding experience, too. It’s great to be able to return with such a good number of dates!”
